It has been reported today that Dallas Cowboys receiver Terrance Williams will miss most, if not all, of the offseason program following surgery to repair a broken foot. It is not yet known when, or how, Williams suffered the injury.

Cowboys wide receiver Terrance Williams is recovering from a broken foot that required surgery, according to sources. Executive vice president Stephen Jones did not elaborate on the nature of Williams' injury but said Williams would miss some time... https://t.co/plpE6JOkls

This news may help explain the Cowboys' sudden aggressive pursuit of receivers in free agency. Dallas has signed both Allen Hurns and Deonte Thompson in the last few days.

Hurns, who will average $6 million per season, is already expected to take over as the number-two receiver. The Cowboys gave yet to release or trade Dez Bryant, and that seems less likely with each passing day.

Even with these additions, Williams' roster spot seems safe. There is no cap relief in cutting him and a trade partner may be hard to find for a marginal talent. This injury will only further complicate a trade.

Thankfully, Terrance's five seasons in Dallas means he won't be too negatively affected by the lost time. He knows the system and should come back just fine, hopefully in time for a few preseason games if not training camp.

The big question is just how far down the depth chart he might fall.

    This Smells like a Derrick Holland type of cover up injury

  • Travis Diggs

    This is the type of situation that tells me his days are numbered. While he’ll probably be on the roster at times next year, Hurns takes over as the 2 maybe the 1 with Dez going to 2(maybe, hopefully??) . You figure they draft a WR and get Switzer and/or Beasley(pending cutting/trading him) and Noah Brown more involved. Theirs simply no space for him and he’s at best an average receiver Simple Math

  • EverybodyTalks

    In simple math, Butler wasn’t coming back and Deontay filled that position. Hurns is much more interesting. T.Will had surgery 4 weeks ago, so perhaps, just perhaps, Hurns was brought on as insurance for T.Will’s surgery. That is not to say this was the only reason. When you look at the KC game last season, both T.Will and Dez ended up with leg/foot injuries. Hurns can be that insurance if either of them ends up injured. He covered for Robinson, in Jacksonville, when he went down. It is true that the WR corp is crowded, but I don’t think T.Will falls that far. In the first half of the season, T.Will was initially injured in the NYG game (I believe) and he was out and then he was back in the game. T.Will stated it was all just a matter of dealing with pain tolerance. He may be slight, but he is tough. I think he ends up #2 or #3 WR. Noah Brown could be pushed out or tried at TE because of his blocking ability. Love Beaser, but he could be moved out to make room, especially if we draft a WR.

    WR gets worse as the offseason goes on. 2 journeymen signed, Williams hurt and also he stays…

    Witten stays, starts and will cost cap after he’s done. Butler was the only WR catching any balls deep last year, Cowboys not interested…

  • Mr. Jaguar

    T Williams- Beasley both will be on the outside looking in by 2019.

Report: QB Dak Prescott Signs Multi-Year Deal With Campbell’s Chunky Soup

Jekyll or Hyde: Year 3 "Prove It" Season For Dak Prescott? 1

Being the Dallas Cowboys starting quarterback comes with its challenges, but it certainly comes with its perks as well. One of those perks is the opportunity for endorsement deals, and income outside of his football salary.

Dak Prescott is embracing those perks now, reportedly signing a multi-year deal with Campbell's Chunky Soup through 2020. Prescott will continue to endorse Chunky MAXX, Campbell's protein soup line.

Brandon George on Twitter

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott has re-signed a new multi-year deal with Campbell's Chunky Soup through 2020. This is the first QB multi-year deal for Chunky Soup since Donovan McNabb in 2001. He'll continue to promote Chunky MAXX, the protein-packed line of soups, this year, per Edelman

Campbell's Soup has had some legendary football related commercials throughout the years, none more memorable than those with former Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb and his mother.

In fact, Dak Prescott is the first NFL quarterback to sign a multi-year deal with Campbell's Chunky Soup since those McNabb commercials.

Hopefully, Dak Prescott can continue to "prove it" on the field and still be the Cowboys starting quarterback throughout this entire Campbell's deal.

BREAKING: David Irving Suspended For 2nd Consecutive Year

David Irving

For the second consecutive year, Defensive Lineman David Irving is being suspended for four games by the NFL. This time, the suspension comes after Irving violated the NFL's policy on substance of abuses, as Ian Rapoport reported.

Cowboys DL David Irving is being suspended 4 games for violating @NFL policy on substance of abuses, sources say. Another big-time D-linemen hit with a suspension for Dallas.

Irving will play for the Dallas Cowboys after the team placed a second-round tender on him earlier in the year. Why no team was interested in picking such a talented defensive tackle for a second round pick is becoming clearer and clearer as the time goes on.

In April, when David Irving got hacked by his former girlfriend one of the tweets that stood out the most was one which said "Wait until you all find about his failed drug tests." Now, we're seeing what the tweet was about.

Irving is a very talented player that could have a great career ahead of him. Of course, with this being the second consecutive year in which he receives a suspension to start the season, one could question how much he wants it.

The Cowboys will play the Panthers, Giants, Seahawks and Lions to start the season. They'll have to do it with one of their most promising defensive players in David Irving.

Here at Inside The Star, we'll keep you updated with this story and every Dallas Cowboys news.

Jason Witten’s Lasting Message to Cowboys TE Rico Gathers

Cowboys 2016 Draft Class: Who Will Be The Stand Out In 2017?

When Dallas Cowboys legend Jason Witten retired from the NFL last month, he left behind an unproven group of tight ends for the Cowboys to field as Witten moves on to the Monday Night Football broadcast booth. This is not a TE group short of potential, although that's nothing new for the laundry list of players that have failed at the position behind the Hall of Fame bound Witten.

Headlining this group of potential heirs to Witten has to be 2016 draft pick Rico Gathers. Not yet given the same opportunities that Geoff Swaim and Blake Jarwin are receiving through the Cowboys ongoing mini camp, Gathers has been criticized for his commitment to his team.

Looking to make the transition from the basketball court at Baylor to the football field, Gathers' journey began at Witten's soon-to-be home forever. Playing his first organized football game since middle school, Gathers and Witten were teammates in the Hall of Fame game at Canton, Ohio in 2017.

A game rarely leaving fans with a lasting memories, Gathers immediately flashed potential in the passing game, hauling in three passes for 59 yards and a touchdown. Gathers would go on to spend the season on IR after a concussion suffered in practice, recovering from it in time to return but never seeing the field.

This leaves Gathers' prospects of putting it all together in year three at a difficult crossroads. It will be hard to question Gathers' commitment moving forward, as the message from his former teammate Jason Witten still lives with him.

Jason Witten's Lasting Message to Cowboys TE Rico Gathers

If Witten truly sees a "bright future" for Rico Gathers, who Head Coach Jason Garrett says needs work in the running game, there is no reason the Cowboys can't find a role for him this season. With an entirely unproven group of wide receivers, Gathers could be the reliable mismatch for Dak Prescott to target in the middle of the field.

Prescott was the ninth worst quarterback in the league last season in red zone completion percentage, surely something the 6'6" TE Gathers could help improve.

Gathers may be a long way off from becoming Prescott's version of Witten to Tony Romo, but there is still hope for the 2016 draft pick, according to now football analyst Jason Witten.
